It was a nice idea, but things just aren’t working out.
When Justin Fuente decided to hand the reins of his defense to up-start defensive assistant Justin Hamilton, there was reason for optimism.
Hamilton, a Hokies legend in his own right, showed signs of developing into a superstar coach. His work with defensive backs, specifically safeties, resulted in on-field improvements. Reggie Floyd became a leader and captain at rover, Divine Deablo was groomed to take his place and Chamarri Conner grew into a high-reward player still learning to play at a consistent level.
